    There was another thread about her quilt and she posted to that thread! So she does know about this site.

    I read an article about being wealthy. To simplify it, spending $10 by the average consumer is the same as spending $100 to the well off, $1,000 to the wealthy, and $10,000 to the super rich. The Bill Gates of the world, it would be like spending $70 for the quilt.

    I am very proud that more people are finally beginning to appreciate the hard work that goes into quilting, especially the type of work you have done, GREAT JOB, I feel the lady who purchased this work of art got a bargain

    That's just plain ridiculous...not the wealth, but to believe that kind of logic.

    what's wrong with it? When you or I are in the grocery we are looking to see which brand of coffee is the best deal. Do you honestly believe someone like Bill Gates does the same thing?

    Hmmm. Cryptic message. Are you the one who made that wonderful quilt? Inquiring minds want to know!

    I have a relative who is in a different bracket than we are, so to speak. I remember, once, we ordered take out pizza and the tip this relative gave the delivery man blew DH and my minds. (We talked about it, later). So money is relative. If this woman keeps calling the quilt artist up to thank her for making it, it sure sounds like she doesn't regret her purchase and that she'll value it.

    This is amazing stuff. I can't even dream of one of my quilts ever being worth that much money. It is one beautiful quilt! Thanks to whoever shared this story.

    I could look at this quilt all day long...Think of your salary and how much you would make with 3,000 hours worth of excellent work.
